This post really has very little to do with teaching, but then again it does. I am so thankful for my health. I complain a lot (mostly in my head) that I am still not "myself", but thank the Lord that each and every day I gain more and more strength. This week was hard - the effects of chemo still follow me around. I hate not being able to get in the floor with my kiddos and not having the energy to do my "normal". Just about the time that I was going into my one of my "pity parties" a local paramedic came into my classroom and brought me a pink shirt that the firemen are wearing this month. He is such a blessing to me for so many reasons, but as you can imagine I cried like a baby right then and there. I have been so blessed with so many friends and family that have lifted me up in so many ways that I continually tell myself TO STOP COMPLAINING! It's amazing that something as bad as stage IIIA breast cancer can be such a blessing. Thank you Lord for showing me that You do work all things together for good.
So many acts of kindness have definitely motivated me to "press on". So, I have posted more pictures and comments of some of my favorite activities from this week under "Math Stations". This little blog is also a motivator. Thanks, Julie H. for encouraging me to go for it!
